IU Center for Bioethics & IU Center for Global Health

Lunch Seminar

On Tuesday, May 30, Tizian Zumthurn, Doctoral Candidate, University of Bern will present "Medical Practice at Albert Schweitzer's Hospital in Lambarene (Gabon) 1913 - 1965:  An Early Model of Global Health?" from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in Room R121, Rotary Building (702 Circle Drive).  Lunch is provided.

Based on 50 years of detailed records, this talk will describe the operation of one of the oldest and best documented hospitals operating in central Africa.  Schweitzer (1952 Nobel Peace Prize) was neither a missionary nor government official, and the history of his hospital warrants comparison to contemporary NGO global health organizations.
